    I like the new anti Apple lawsuit lockscreen. No more point to point sliding, now slide anywhere you want.

    The eye candy for visible on alarms, answering the phone, and the lock screen. I also noticed in the menu under Ringtone, where it asked you about vibrate or not, there are 3 different settings you can change with respect to how hard the phone vibrates and haptic feedback settings too.

    i tried to get this update a few times today on my mac and pc without success. had it connected through kies and downloaded the update (took almost 2 hours... wtf) at about 70% it jumps up incrementally to 100% then auto ejects my phone and gives me an error message.

    now my phone is hanging on the "Downloading... Do not turn off target!!" screen. not sure if its going to do anything since the same thing happened the first time i tried. any ideas wtf is going on?
